Launched in December of 2011, Stuff and Things quickly became one of the most popular arts podcasts in Australia. Amassing over 10,000 downloads in its first ten episodes, the show’s genuine and relaxed voice has proved a hit with listeners across the country. Approaching the most important arts topics of the day with humour and intelligence, Stuff and Things reflects the personality of its two hosts: Carley Commens and David Burton, who can jump from talking about a zombie apocalypse to the difficulties of national arts funding in the blink of an eye.
Previous guests have included Nick Earls, Benjamin Law, Liesel Zink, Steve Molks, and many many more. Most recently, Stuff and Things has begun to showcase new writer’s work on it’s ‘Humble’ specials. Stuff and Things also recently had the pleasure to attend the SupaNova Expo on the Gold Coast.
‘With its blend of thoughtful discussion and light humour, Stuff and Things effortlessly strikes the perfect balance between entertainment, inspiration, and education. It’s also a love song to nerds everywhere…Stuff and Things is the kind of wonderfully irreverent gem that you can’t wait to share with your mates and claim discovery of.’ – Carody Culver, Critical Mass
Stuff and Things closed its doors in January of 2013.
